The problem at the root of the RCMP’s dysfunctional culture

It feels like every passing day reveals another problem about the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. There have been reports of sexist mistreatment of female officers, bullying and harassment generally, unacceptable behaviour by trainers at the RCMP training depot in Regina, and the Mounties’ role in the national saga about murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls. The RCMP’s performance as a municipal police was put on trial last year in Moncton after three officers were killed by lone gunman Justin Bourque, and the one guilty finding from the four charges laid against the RCMP was for a failure to “provide RCMP members with appropriate use of force equipment and related user training when responding to an active threat or active shooter event”—a stinging indictment of the force all the same.
